Dear Narcissa -

Please excuse my tardiness in responding to your gift of several Fifi LaFolle books. I am sure that you can imagine how busy I have been preparing for the newcomers.

At first I was skeptical as to whether I could find comfort in these books, but I have come to see why you regard them so highly. They are designed for the romantic at heart, and the updated enchantments that allow the reader to adjust the gender of the main characters is a godsend.

Again, my thanks. My best to Lucius and Draco -

Sincerely yours,

Severus

Remus, of course, doted on him: he cooked the meals, rubbed Severus' aching back, brought him books and magazines and a charmed radio that got the BBC as well as the WWN. And despite the weight gain caused by twins (twins!), he still swore he found Severus attractive, and still did what he could to see to Severus' physical release.

It was all surprisingly pleasant – and then it was the full moon, and Remus had to spend the night elsewhere. And the only thing in the house that Severus hadn't read was Enchanted Encounters: The Spinster and the Wolfman....

Poppy simply shook her head. “They're harmless amusement. You might even like them.”

Severus folded his arms, adjusting them after a second to accommodate his increasing bulk. “Romances about girls being swept off their feet by dashing princelings is not precisely in accordance with my taste in partners. That should be obvious.”

“There's at least one about werewolves,” said Poppy. She cast another spell. “Congratulations, by the way. It's a boy.”

Severus frowned. “You said last time it was a girl.”

“That, too,” said Poppy. “That's why I'm putting you on bed rest for the next six weeks.”

“Fifi LaFolle?” Poppy, who had come over to check on Severus after he flatly refused to go out in public, cocked an eyebrow at the stack of Enchanted Encounters paperbacks on the coffee table. “Good heavens, I haven't read these in years! Wherever did you get them?”

Severus glared, but waited until she'd cast a diagnostic spell to speak. “They were a gift from an alleged friend. She seemed to think I'd enjoy them, God knows why.”

“They're silly fun,” said Poppy. “Surely you've confiscated some from your students.”

“That's how I know I wouldn't like them!”

Dearest Severus -

Congratulations on your impending parenthood! After watching you mentor and protect my dearest Draco over the years, I have every confidence that you will prove a loving and excellent parent to your own child.

Enclosed please find a small gift to help you pass the time until you actually hold your child in your arms. I took much comfort in Fifi LaFolle's lovely romances during the weary weeks when relations with my beloved were not permitted, and I trust you will as well. They are truly a blessing.

Enjoy!

With much love and good wishes,

Narcissa Malfoy

Challenge 713: Snape's Library - Enchanted Encounters

This series of magical romances by Fifi LaFolle could be pleasant leisure reading for anyone but Severus, I suspect. Or am I wrong? Maybe Severus secretly enjoys romances. However you see it, this week we discuss Snape and Enchanted Encounters.

“Well. That was harrowing,” said Remus. His eyes were glowing slightly after Sybil's apocalyptic blather. “Are you all right?”

“I will be once I've figured out how one baby can simultaneously 'summon the dragons' and 'bring peace to the dead,' let alone win multiple Olympic medals and cause the simultaneous collapse of every bridge in Britain.” Severus lumbered to the pantry for another of those delightful fairy cakes Minerva had brought, and never mind that it was his third this afternoon. “She's a lunatic.”

“No doubt of that,” said Remus, and put the kettle on the hob.

Sybil did have a point: the offspring of a Death Eater who'd conceived a child with a werewolf under the influence of an alchemical fugue played by a badly charmed “deluxe edition” of a highly symbolic four hundred year old book needed all the prophecy it could get. Or so he told himself as Sybil opened her battered copy of Broken Balls, and began to flip through the dogeared pages.

“Hm,” she said, and then “Ah,” and occasionally “I see.” Severus was on the verge of hexing her when she closed the book, smiled, and said, “Shall we begin?”

Remus held up his hand before Severus could tell Sybil exactly what he thought of divination in general and her “prophecies” in specific. “Broken Balls? Isn't that largely about death prophecies?”

“There is a chapter on, how shall I put this, unfortunate predictions,” Sybil admitted. “That's scarcely the entirety of book.”

“That's not how I remember it,” said Remus. “Sybil, this is a very kind offer, but a book about 'unfortunate predictions' isn't necessarily a good source for divining a baby's future.”

“Oh, but it is!” cried Sybil, and Severus knew there was no help for it.

“Ah, Severus. You're all but glowing!” exclaimed Sybil Trelawney, advancing as if to embrace him.

Severus, who was glowing only in the sense that the light from candles was behind him, did not move as Remus growled slightly. It was lovely having a possessive werewolf for a partner, especially now that he'd reached the stage of pregnancy where perfect strangers treated his body as a fetish object. “Hello, Sybil. To what do we owe the honor?”

Sybil blinked, possibly at the growl. “I've come to perform a divination for your offspring. Broken Balls claims this is the perfect time!”

Challenge 712: Snape's Library - Broken Balls: When Fortunes Turn Foul

This Divination textbook may not be on Severus' shelves currently, but I imagine he's at least flipped through it. After all, he had to take Divination while in school. What's his opinion of it, I wonder? Not flattering I imagine. Or do you believe I'm wrong? However you see it, this week we discuss Snape and Broken Balls: When Fortunes Turn Foul.

Excerpt from review in the Daily Prophet of the new edition of Advanced Potion Making, by Libatius Borage, revised and expanded edition by Hermione Granger-Weasley and Severus Snape:

...the emendations by Ms. Granger-Weasley and Professor Snape are little short of brilliant. The tips on technique, the sidebar on stirring clockwise versus anticlockwise, the chapter on experimentation – all are so perfectly written, and so seamlessly integrated into the classic text, that even the most exacting critic must welcome this update.

In particular, Professor Snape must be commended for his update to the Wolfsbane potion to improve the taste and dosage....

It was harrowing, listening to how to Hermione had been treated like an ignoramus simply because she had reproduced. Severus prided himself on his brains, and the thought of that being discounted because of pregnancy made him even sicker than the wretched fry-up the elves had served him that morning.

“So. This is my fate due to a dunderhead at a publishing - “

“No. It's what society will attempt to foist on you.” Hermione tapped Advanced Potion Making. “Help me correct the errors and we can change the narrative.”

Severus nodded, very slowly. “When do we start?”

Severus narrowed his eyes. “I'm not sure I know what you mean.”

She smiled, but there was no mirth in it. “Why do you think I left the Ministry to revise old textbooks? 'The cleverest witch of my age,' but no one took me seriously after Rose was born. It's as if I'd suddenly become stupid because I had a child.”

Severus went cold. Was this what was in store for him? His body had already begun to change, and even with Remus he was deeply unnerved by the thought of the next few months. “Tell me more,” he said.

“So. I understand you'll be my replacement over the next school year.” Severus, who was still reeling from the revelation that he and Remus were to be parents (and possibly last night's fish) looked Hermione Granger-Weasley up and down. “I assume you'll have your own ideas about the syllabus.”

“A few, yes, but only with your permission.” She was still intense, still bushy haired, and her work revising Advanced Potion Making was brilliant. “I wanted to go over it with you first.”

Severus blinked. “Why?”

“Because I know what it's like to be dismissed because of motherhood.”

“Well.” Minerva had deactivated the offending copy of Atalanta Fugiens while Severus had bawled inconsolably in Remus' arms and Poppy had assured him that hormones were funny things and he would be fine soon. “We'll have to ask Slughorn back to cover while Severus is on leave - “

“Must we?” Filius interjected. “His 'Slug Club' was most disruptive, especially since so few of the Hufflepuffs and Ravenclaws were invited. Surely there's a better choice while Severus is in a delicate condition?”

“I agree,” said Septima Vector. “Hermione Granger-Weasley is updating Advanced Potion Making. She'd be ideal.”

We all knew this book. After all, Severus essentially made it his own with his many edits. Does he have a pristine copy, though? Or perhaps he manages to persuade the publishers to let him edit it? However you see it, this week we discuss Snape and Advance Potion Making.
